Hot-dipped galvanizing is used to help steel resist rust, preserve its appearance, or last longer in outdoor situations and other harsh environments. Applying a thin layer of zinc directly onto steel gives the metal enhanced corrosion protection. This helps protect the quality and performance of the steel, lengthening the life of parts and products.
In a year that presented exceptional obstacles to normal operations, for both suppliers and manufacturers, John Deere named us a repeat Partner-Level Supplier for 2021, also making us a ten-year Hall of Fame member. We take it as further proof that the way our people continue to approach our business is critically important: always working to find creative solutions to meet our customers’ needs, no matter the challenge.
As a major supplier of galvanized steel in North America, Worthington Industries is at the forefront of research to improve how galvanized is developed and made. Our own steel expert, Ben Reed, teamed with University of Pittsburgh to test its Induction Simulator with hot dip galvanizing processes. This research has the potential to help speed operations and eliminate costly trial-and-error techniques.
Galvanizing helps prevents rust and corrosion—especially when steel is exposed to moisture or corrosive materials, with common applications such as:
It's not just about how we coat. It's what we can coat, for a wide range of needs:
We offer acrylic coating, which further enhances corrosion protection and helps keep zinc looking brighter longer. It's applied inline over the galvanizing (at coating weights G30-G210). This acrylic coating also improves lubricity for roll forming or forming. Our primary acrylic is non-tinted, but acrylic coating can be painted. We recommend that you contact your paint supplier for best primer and paint to use.
We were curious. We knew acrylic coating helped prevent the formation of white rust on galvanized. But how much? And could we find other reasons to use it? Our Materials Support team tested acrylic vs. chromate. Read to learn why acrylic’s the best choice for a variety of manufacturing processes and applications.
Galvanizing is one important step in the process of making your steel. We’re a one-stop shop, with the expertise, experience, and capacity to add pickling, slitting and oscillate slitting, temper rolling, and more. Whatever it takes to make your steel perform, we can deliver it.
We've seen it. And we solved it. This technical case study shows how we can team with you to improve your process.
We do galvanized steel with the broadest range of gauges in North America—and fill additional needs with pickling and slitting.
Recently, we aced an assessment by a trusted outside research firm in our industry, scoring 100%—based on quality, delivery, cost, safety, and business practices/partnerships.
The right steel and bright solutions from our experienced experts will improve your process.
As the price of steel goes up and down, your costs, prices, and performance are at risk.
